Iris pseudacorus - yellow flag root system

Watercolour on paper
24 cm H x 33 cm W


This Iris self-seeded itself in a pot and I was intrigued to find out what lay beneath the surface. This piece was very time consuming, demanding and fascinating to paint. I loved using the rich colours contrasting them with the green of the shoots and the lighter tones of the gnarly roots. Mounted in a double mat 40 x 50cms.
